The Hammer by CycleOps was designed to create the ultimate riding experience. This direct-drive-style bike trainer eliminates the tire-to-roller contact, and is capable of replicating any outdoor ride, from conversational group rides to rolling hills to face-pain-inducing 20% grades. All of this is done with a smooth, road-like feel, thanks to a massive 20lb. precision-balanced flywheel that replicates real-world inertia, which is claimed to the best in the marketplace. Paired with the rapid-response electromagnetic-resistance system, this trainer can cover large resistance changes in a blink of an eye at a whisper-quiet 64 decibels, and is tuned using PowerTap technology for accurate power readings. The Hammer seamlessly connects to CycleOps VirtualTraining or other third-party training platforms with dual
ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
